Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James has weighed in on the violence in Charlottesville and said America needs to focus on love rather than the “so-called president.”
The NBA star spoke Tuesday at a charity event he hosted and said, “Well, I have this platform and I’m somebody that has a voice of command and the only way for us to be able to get better as a society and us to get better as people is love. And that’s the only way we’re going to be able to conquer something at the end of the day.”
“It’s not about the guy that’s the so-called president of the United States or whatever,” James added, holding his daughter. “It’s about us, looking in the mirror.”
James, a proud supporter of Hillary Clinton during the election, also sent a “shout-out to the innocent people in Charlottesville and shout-out to everybody across the world that just want to be great and just want to love.”
James also took several other swipes at Trump on Twitter this week after the violence in Virginia:
LeBron is really feeling the love for Trump, huh?
